In a classic “Peanuts” comic, Charlie Brown is warned that all the girls are angry with him. The girls confront him with many complaints and then ask, “What have you got to say for yourself?” Rather than arguing, Charlie says, “Nothing. You girls are absolutely right, and I’m glad to hear you feel this way.” After they leave he turns to look at the reader and says, “My
soft answer hath turned away a whole flock of wrath.”
